The Kingwood Business Women (KBW) announced it’s 2nd annual ‘Business and Brunch’. The event will take place on March 4, 2023, from 10 am – 2 pm at the Kingwood Country Club. Attendees can expect to enjoy brunch and mimosas, raffle giveaways, receive complimentary professional portraits, and shop an exclusive vendor market.
With nearly 200 attendees, the focus of this event is to bring together women in business for an afternoon of networking and knowledge-sharing. KBW’s goal is to highlight and uplift Kingwood female-led businesses and local entrepreneurs. The founder of KBW, Christa Elyce McCourt states, “We are so excited to gather together again this year – to reconnect, and to celebrate the milestones and growth of the association which has become such a beautiful part of our community”.
The event featured Julia Wang, CEO of NextGen Realty as the keynote speaker. Her keynote address was followed by a panelist of industry leaders in a Q&A session. Attendees will be able to gain industry knowledge on branding, and digital marketing and learn more about KBWA’s mission and its innovative take on modern networking.
“We’re our honored to have had SOLD OUT yet another, KBW Business & Brunch event, with 200 professional women in attendance.” said Christa Elyce McCourt. Kingwood Business Women (KBW) continues to be a strong platform and center of influence in the Kingwood community. This past year, the association has offered its members a range of business education master classes and workshops, as well as digital marketing courses, large-scale networking events, and outreach opportunities.
This year, the event benefited the H-Town Dream Center, a non-profit whose mission is to provide aid to women and children in need. “Kingwood Business Women, as a collective of professional women, feel we’ve been blessed with fortunate opportunities. We search for ways we can return the favor by creating opportunities for those who are in need.” said McCourt.
Kingwood Business Women promotes and features members and their businesses throughout its platforms to solidify brand awareness and growth. Throughout the last year, its members have had an active role in local initiatives and charitable work, including sponsoring the charity fundraiser, Project Mammogram In the Pink luncheon, and notably won “the most patriotic spirit” award at the Kingwood 4th of July Parade in its first year of participating. McCourt states “We have had a wonderful year immersing our organization into the community and we look forward to 2023 collaborations within our community.”
